Tapas / Small Plates | Downtown / Union Square, San Francisco

Great spot if you want something near Union Square but also want to avoid the tourist crowds. Tapas are very good (the octopus was amazing) and the wine selection is great too. But above all else, the service is fantastic. A great place to spend a few hours and be well taken care of. This is a hidden gem that others haven’t found yet - take advantage. More

Californian | Santa Rosa, Wine Country

From the welcoming glass of wine we were given through the port and chocolate trifle, this was a fabulous experience. The wines were uniformly excellent, and the chef's pairings were perfectly matched to the wines. I'd be hard pressed to choose a favorite course. The opening cucumber gazpacho was a refreshing start. The flavors in the halibut tagine were complex and made me want to scoop up every last drop. Next came a pulled pork adobado which was taken to the next level with the avocado puree and spinach huaraches that accompanied it. The old vine zin that accompanied it was my favorite wine of the day. Then there was the grilled zabutan, which may possibly be the best steak I've ever eaten. And finally, a perfect chocolate trifle. Portions are small, but sufficient for my husband and I. The hosts, Tina and Terra, did a lovely job of explaining the wines and food, and created a friendly atmosphere at the table. We can't wait to return! More

Discover San Francisco

Farm-to-table is everywhere now, but it was here first. Just north of San Francisco, the values-forward counties of Marin and Sonoma offer an abundance of sustainably sourced produce. Of course, there’s more to eat in the Bay than leafy greens alone—don’t miss the mainstays like Cioppino (a seafood stew best eaten with thick-cut garlic bread), Mission-style burritos, local oysters and Neapolitan pizza where pizzerias around town war for the ultimate version. The city has long been home to distinct international flavors, so for authentic dim sum, Chinatown tops the charts. The Mission is ablaze with longstanding taquerias, steakhouses and a new wave of artisanal bakeries and coffee houses. And the Fisherman’s Wharf, while touristy, is the spot for Bay caught seafood. From there, we recommend walking to Crissy Field for Golden Gate Bridge gazing and sparkling sunshine.
